NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Do people know that there are people in Lawrence County who cannot get to the cancer treatments they need to possibly save their lives?
Do people know that there is something that they can do about this problem? The American Cancer Society needs their support for its Road to Recovery program.
The Road to Recovery program provides volunteer transportation for cancer patients to and from their treatments. The volunteers who drive for this program provide a crucial service to patients whose families and friends cannot drive them for every treatment
Drivers are an important part of a patient’s recovery, providing moral support and a sympathetic ear. Volunteers can be retirees, students, homemakers or someone with some time to spare. The main requirements are the desire to help others and, of course, a car in good working condition.
We hope that people in our community with a morning or afternoon available every week or month will participate in this lifesaving program. A person can volunteer as often as he or she wishes. The American Cancer Society provides an orientation, support materials and other assistance.
Those interested in volunteering as a local or long-distance driver can call the American Cancer Society at (724) 654-5577. For those who are in need of transportation, they can call the American Cancer Society at (800) 227-2345.
